No, but it is on the most direct route from Calgary to Chilliwack. Fortunately for Jim, he just flew over that.

Have not set one up yet but our trailer will be completed on 12/22. We will start traveling around Jan. 4th or 5th. We will confirm a pickup date with ETI after New Years Day.

ETI (Chilliwack) sits in a valley between two magnificent mountain ranges. Think Glaser NSP. When I went to pickup Ten Forward on July 3, there were still bits of snow on those ranges. Leah... one of Reace's an Tammy's daughters was escorting me around (getting the 5th wheel hitch put in my truck!) and I asked her if snow was common during the winter months in Chilliwack, she said definitely NO seeing snow was "kinda cool." So now you know what I know and maybe you should Google "global warming" or at least watch the 2012 movie "The Day After Tomorrow."

Safe travels, hope you catch a break in the weather. It's an awful long drive from Texas.

You will likely be there earlier than our Jan 26 date, and ours will be somewhat weather dependent, though towing a trailer on winter roads is really not much of a bother for me.
